Hey Sgurr/Sqiz - I thought you had been sending photos to the BBC news website, but it turns out to be a copycat effort (see image 14):

Blimey....must have stopped off in the same layby !!!!Mine is all my own work. Honest. The unzoomed one is in Two on Blue Skye (Scottishhills.com) Does Paul let people change their names? For some reason (super security paranoia) I thought you had to have different usernames for different web-sites, but it would make more sense being Squiz on this one too.

Sorry Mo, but i have to disqualify myself. jwramsay got dq'd for a similar thing last year. So rules are rules and its only fair that I withdraw my image.

That'll teach me.... :crazy:

I'm sure that all of us who have entered wish your owl pic to be kept in. I feel rotten for mentioning this now.

Rik, had it been another entrant then you would have noticed and sorted it easily and the photo would have remained eligible, because the rest of us rely on your vigilance to keep things on track it was missed, and that's our fault as much as anyones.

I would like to see the votes for your photo upheld and in no way changed.

Ok, if most of you insisit, then this time it will stay. Like you said, if it were someone elses I would have spotted it. Next time though, if I make the same mistake again, I will withdraw my photo.

Still embarrasing though... :shock:
